Our top 3 women’s health Supplements
Many health professionals would agree that the best way to ensure that your body is getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals, you need to incorporate a variety of plant-based foods into your diet.
However, out of the 13 vitamins that all women need including vitamins C, A, D, E, K and the B vitamins (such as thiamine and vitamin B12), it’s believed that around 30% of all women are deficient in one or more of these vitamins, and with age, the risk increases. (source)
In today’s post, we share our top three women's health supplements and how they can support your overall health and wellness.
Viridian Organic Maca Root 500mg
Maca sometimes referred to as ‘Peruvian Ginseng’, is a radish-like root vegetable native to Peru.
The maca used in Viridian’s organic maca is known as a ‘yellow blend’ which incorporates all three known root colours.
Maca Root is rich in amino acids, carbohydrates, calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and has been described as an adaptogen, increasing the body's ability to defend itself against physical and mental stressors.
It is thought that Maca has a balancing effect on the hormonal systems within our bodies.
Viridian Organic Maca Root may benefit:
- Low libido - studies indicate that Maca increases sexual desire and improves dysfunction in both sexes.
- Fertility - Maca is believed to contain phyto oestrogens which have been shown to affect fertility in both sexes.
- Menopause - Maca has been shown to relieve common menopausal symptoms. Although no hormonal changes were noted in studies on libido, balancing effects were found on female hormones when Maca was given to menopausal women as a natural alternative to HRT.
Viridian Organic Maca Root Dosage: Take one to three capsules daily.
